Golden yellow color. Floral, nutty aromas of toasted almond cake, hibiscus blossom, dried white flowers, and hay and dried pineapple with a round, crisp, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, complex, medium-long sweet almond milk, Victorian sponge cake, summer peach, and pistachio finish with well-integrated tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A toothsome and delicious Rhone Varietal Blend.

Rhone White Varietal Blend

The Rhône Rangers are a hearty band of US vintners who plant and promote lesser-known white varietals from France's Rhône Valley. They sing the praises of wines such as viognier, marsanne, roussanne and blends thereof.
